Summers are a blast! School’s out and you get to spend time with your friends and family. But during this relaxing time, a lot of people tend to forego their disciplined dental care regimen in favor of fruity drinks and late night partying.
To ensure that your summer smile stays bright and healthy, we’re here with some dental care tips for the warm season!

Ice, Ice Baby!

We know it can get pretty hot in the summers and that slushes are refreshing, but chewing on ice just isn’t acceptable! Not only can it damage your tooth enamel, but it can also chip your tooth! Moreover, it can exacerbate pre-existing dental treatments, especially if you have dental implants and crowns.
Now you might argue that crushed ice is harmless because it’s not as rough on the teeth. That would be only partially true.
Yes, crushed ice probably won’t result in a broken tooth, but the sugary goodness that it’s usually dipped in can be equally damaging for your oral health, if not more!
So this summer, just stick to dancing to Ice, Ice Baby, rather than chewing on some!

Partying in Vegas?

Las Vegas is the second most famous summer vacation spot in the US. So it’s no surprise if you’re planning to hit the casinos this year as well. But remember, whatever dental problems you pick up in Vegas don’t stay in Vegas! So taking appropriate oral hygiene care is essential, even while on vacation.
Furthermore, if you encounter a dental emergency while on your trip, get in touch with a reliable dental facility in the area immediately!
In fact, booking a future appointment is a great idea, since you won’t have to worry about finding a dentist last minute!

A Great Time for a Dental Checkup!

This is a great segue into telling you that summer is a great time to pay your local dentist an annual visit!
You’re out of school, you don’t have many responsibilities, and you won’t have to cram the appointment in between your really busy schedule!
Moreover, since routine checkups should be scheduled every 6 months, scheduling one now will mean the other one will fall during winter break!
So what are you waiting for? Summer is here! Get in touch with us at Image Dental & Orthodontics; the best dentists in Las Vegas for all your dental emergencies and needs!

"Dr. Amy is like the golden goddess of all things teeth. Seriously I look up at those beautiful browns and just do whatever she tells me to. No, in all seriousness, you could not be in better hands both in skill and bedside manner. After you catch your breath, take a minute to listen to her professional advice. She's helped me a lot and I feel great about my smile."
